“Family was everything to my parents. So while they would quarrel, they would just live and die for their children, their grandchildren and really each other.

It’s not to say that Mark and I never fight. It’s just that we really don’t, we really don’t like yell and scream at each other. We kid together and we air it out and we say each other’s peace and we understand what the other person’s saying and we try to move on.”

“His commitment, it never wavers. That’s what it seems to me. I just can’t, I almost get teary-eyed. The commitment that he has is so strong. It is truly my #1 Pillar. It’s what makes me feel more secure in life.”

Trusting in love has been hard for me over the years. He’s so sensitive to that and he’s so understanding of where that comes rooted from and why it bubbles to the top.” So anytime I might want to communicate to him, I just know that I can say anything.”

“That’s what I love about him most, just to be able to tell him anything.”
